Have you ever felt completely void of thought? That’s how I have felt lately. Like my brain has hit a roadblock the size of the Hoover Dam on the creative front and I have to defer to Pinterest and Twitter for any sort of ideas whether it be for decorating, artistic projects/crafts or recipes (Twitter has become one of my favorite places to find recipes, probably because the majority of people I follow are dietitians like me so I know their recipes are going to be good). This means coming up with fresh, new ideas has been quite the challenge. Ever see an innovative technology, artistic piece or clever writing and think about how genius the person was who created it? I am hoping all of the outlets that I have been looking to for inspiration will eventually unlock an underlying creativity hiding somewhere deep inside me. A lot of things I have read encourage letting your mind wander and abandoning yourself through play to boost creativity. There was a speaker in one of my classes who recommended keeping your eyes open to the world around you and try to think about the stuff you see, for instance go to an art museum and really think about what you are looking at. Reading also stimulates and opens up your mind. All of these strategies will be put into action as I work to unleash my inner creative spirit.
On another note, today marks week 32 (though these pics were taken 2 weeks ago)…only 8 weeks to the due date!! This sweet little Grecian dress is one of the few non-maternity dresses that I have left that still fits my growing bump and has been perfect for keeping me cool in the summer heat.
Hope you have a wonderful (& creatively inspired) rest of the week!!
